Bodega Bay House Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Contemporary Home, 3800 sq.ft. 4 Bedrooms,Library, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enter this home and expect to be amazed by the immense power and beauty of the ocean. I suggest the first thing you do is recline in one of the down filled lounge chairs that are perched in the front bay window over looking the entire coastline, from Point Reyes to Bodega Head. Close your eyes,take a deep breath, then open your eyes and look out towards the horizon. You will feel as though you are floating on water as you sink deeper into the down filled cushion that is keeping you comfy, while the warmth of the sun shines down upon you. If you are wearing shorts you may just catch a tan (summer or winter). Or possibly you will see the spouts from a migrating whale. This is where the magic of Bodega begins. In fact, you will enjoy ocean views from every room in this comfortable contemporary home. (This home sits on the front side of exclusive Gull Drive loop, you won't be looking over rooftops to an ocean view from this house, all views are unobstructed, just you and the ocean here.) Staying here you will feel like you have spent your entire vacation on the ocean, regardless of whether you actually venture out the front door and put you toes in the sand. The setting is so relaxing that each day will feel as though you have spent three days here.

Consider a personal chef for dinner or create your own meals in the chef kitchen. Cooking or dining, you and your guests can enjoy your meal from the dining room (complete with wood burning fireplace and sitting area) while watching the sun set upon Bodega Head. Watch your family or friends walk on the beach after dinner. Or take them out tide pooling before dessert is served.

The back of the house faces the 9th hole and has a large deck complete with fire pit and lounge chairs. Golfers can play the first 9 holes, step into the house for lunch,refreshments and a visit, and continue onto the back 9. The 18 hole scottish links course has breathtaking views and cannot be missed!

Kids and adults both will enjoy the kids park,tennis courts,basketball courts, play ground,dining facility and pro shop just steps away from the house at the nearby club house. BEAUTIFUL hiking trails abound! If you are an equestrian, Chancelor Ranch is a short drive and there you can take a trail ride into the mountains or down to the beach. Kayaking opportunities are endless and guided tours are available nearby. Limo service from Airports and for wine country excursions available upon request. There is much to do if you are interested, or nothing to be done at all, if this is what you prefer. However you choose to relax,Chateau Relax-o has it all.

If it is a romantic weekend, special occasion,or you are just looking for a place to reconnect with self,family,friends and nature,look no further, this is your place! Private in house masseuse also available upon request. Babysitter may be able to be arranged based on availability.

Why Liz chose Bodega Bay

We love the ocean and met on the ocean 16 years ago. Later we purchased this house as a private vacation home for our growing family We've owned the home for 12 years and the house has never been offered for rent before. We use it less now and welcome you to enjoy it as much as we do.The house sits in an idea location, ocean front and a 5 minute walk to the clubhouse where there is fine dining and a pool,sauna and golf amenities. The golf course is spectacular, with phenomenal views and a challenging course. The back side of the house views the 9th hole so you can stop in the house for lunch before completing the back nine. You can settle in and read a good book while looking up occasionally to catch a glimpse of a whales spout up off the waters surface or if you are more adventurous kayak out of Tomales Bay and maybe see one up close and personal. Lots of hiking, biking,long walks,diverse trails,bird watching etc... If you ever want to leave the beach it is only a 30 minute car ride to many winery properties and tasting rooms and to San Francisco. And when you are done with your day you can escape once again to the peace and serenity of this location. The beach is private at our end of Bodega Harbour, so the crowds are non existent. My favorite time of year (other than anytime of year) is in the winter where I relax in the living room bay window area and watch the waves pound the surf during a raging winter storm. Being Bodega Bay, with all of its micro climates one can easily experience a warm summer like day and a stormy winter day all within a 24 hour time frame in the winter. There's always a good time of year to be here.

What makes this house unique

This home is located on the oceanfront side of exclusive Gull Drive loop and has 180 degree unobstructed white water views from Point Reyes to Bodega Head. You won't be looking over rooftops to your ocean view from this house. Just staying in the house is a relaxing vacation in itself. But, if you are the adventurous type there is soooo much to do.Hiking,exploring,fishing,kayaking,whale watching,biking,sand dune surfing,etc. Anyone can enjoy staying here age 0 to100!

Serve yourself and guests coffee in the morning and some can sit in the living room (or almost any room) and view the ocean while watching the rest of your party walk out oceanfront and enjoy their beverage with their toes in the sand or white water of the crashing waves! In the evening enjoy the gourmet kitchen and sweeping ocean views from the dining room table while the fire roars (one of 5 fore places in the house) and you and your guest enjoy a glass of wine. Sit peacefully in the library /office and write that great novel that has been calling you. All the while enjoying the sweeping ocean views from your desk.

In the evening enjoy relaxing by one of the many fire places in this house; possibly, after enjoying a relaxing dip in the enormous roman tile tub in the master bedroom. If it is a romantic weekend you are looking for....look no further.....this is your place!

There are private decks off every room in the house and a recreation room on the garage level complete with TV, ping pong table and a miniature kids pool table. And many boogie boards,balls and kites to play with.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Liz and Bruce,

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We celebrated my Father, on his 70th birthday, while staying at your house. My parents are still talking about the house, the setting, the view, and what a memorable and lovely time we shared there.

Holy Cow!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the place incredible, the care taken by Liz to make the experience memorable was amazing! Everything you could possibly need was easily accessible. The views, the kitchen, the dreamy beds, the comfort and warmth- I was speechless. Completely enjoyed a beautiful sunrise and breathtaking sunset from the glory of the front room! Go! Now!

Our BEST family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Put away your worries this house is perfect and beautiful for whatever activities you plan to do. It is spacious and beautiful and well worth the money invested. We had a family reunion with members between 22 and 73 years old and everyone could pick what they wanted to do. Thanks, Liz, for all your help! We'll be back!

Chateau Relax-O lives up to its name!!

  • 5 of 5

As your heart rate slows and your soul begins to fill, the rest of the world melts away. Chateau Relax-O is a blissful and peaceful place to be. The house is comfortable, clean, well maintained and decorated in a lovely beachy style. My bed was like sleeping on a cloud! The view of the bay is spectacular and taking a sun drenched sunset walk on the beach was unforgettable. There are many amenities nearby catering to diverse tastes. I would recommend the Enzyme bath at Osmosis, chocolate crepes at the cheese shop, delicious bread at the bakery in Bodega Bay. I highly recommend Chateau Relax-O. It feels like a warm hug! I loved it so much, I can't wait to go back!!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us came to celebrate a friend's 50th birthday. The house is amazing - beautiful, clean and in a great location. Easy to get to the beach and close enough to hear the waves! The house is absolutely gorgeous - it was very comfortable with plenty of space for all to enjoy. Would highly recommend!

It was definitely RELAX-O!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I rented this amazing house to celebrate our wedding with a few of our closest friends. All I can say is, the pictures do not do the house justice. The views are amazing, it is very close to the beach, and there was a lot of space for us to hang out as a group or spend some time alone. Liz and Bruce have provided everything one could possibly need... it was well stocked. We cooked three meals a day, everyday and the kitchen was big enough for all of us to prep and cook and again, everything we needed was there. We had such a great time, none of us wanted to leave. It's such a great price for such an amazing place! Thank you Liz and Bruce!

Owner's Response: Congratulations Flora, I am grateful that Chateau Relaxo added to your joyous occasion and honeymoon! : -) Liz and Bruce

Well appointed vacation rental, super location

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a family retreat or in our case, a 50th birthday celebration. We had a great time here for a number of reasons, not the least of which was that the place feels more like someones home than your typical vacation rental. The kitchen was just perfect as we're all cooks and working together in such a beautiful kitchen with everything you could think of was more than we expected. The bedrooms are just gorgeous with incredible views and the formal rooms are spacious enough for a large group. While there isn't really a yard for playing, there are great deck areas for watching the sunset or hanging around the fire pit. The kids had full use of the garage which had a ping pong table. But they most enjoyed the dumb waiter (interior luggage lift elevator) and took over the job of moving in and out.

The beach is a short walk a way so spontaneous walks are easy. Liz also provided a great list of nearby things to do (within 20m or so drives) from a locals perspective. We did several and wouldn't have known had she not pointed them out - things like scenic hiking trails and boogie boarding down sand dunes. The nearby town of Bodega could have been explored more but we found it hard to leave the home once we got settled.

I'd recommend this place to anyone who's considering lower-priced rentals in the area. You won't be disappointed here. We're looking forward to returning.
